    1. True, True....

    2.That is a good strategy. I never seen anyone use the defensive option thought, Also do swim speed up really make the kraken go faster?

    3.That's what getting in melee range of the roller is all about I guess (I don't really use rollers that much expect the dynamo roller and when I do I don't really have to engage in close combat...)

    4. They are great special/subs and yes they are personal references. I do believe thought in the right hands the Kraken can be hard to be put down, Kraken are better at defense play since they can make someone leave the area and you can clean up afterwards. Thought offensive it what Krakens mostly use at least what I see.

    5. I think team communication will make specials and subs better like splash walls or beacons. If I use a beacon I would like to put some to see if some teammates would teleport to them (If I'm playing with randoms) If not I would use them for my benefit or ignore them, and yeah I do think mines are one of the weaker subs.

    You have valid points too, and that's fine I'm not trying to force you to switch. I just wouldn't say it's one of the best rollers. Also welcome to squidboards :)
    Off topic: I do wish you can make splatoon matches into replays at the end of the match like in smash bros....

    Most weapons can do it well expect chargers. Plus you need a high fire rate if your close to it, If you have something like a splattershot pro or the squelchers and their not that close you can stop them dead in their tracks.

    A nerf is a nerf, even if it isn't all out it's still debuffs something in someway.

    To be honest, I had high hopes for the Dynamo and especially the Carbon Rollers. I'm trying rreeeaaallyy hard to make Carbon work, but I just don't like that it'll need Damage Up to work anywhere near the level I'm used to. sigh
    Also, Yes Swim Speed helps the Kraken, but not even hardly that of regular squids; Speciald Duration is better, because in reality the distance covered by either would be the same. (I reaaally wanna see the N-Zapper '89 already. it cant be worse than the '85.)

    I'll always be a Krak-On Brander, but I'm honestly incredibly stoked for the Octobrush. Fingers crossed it lives up to the KOSR's Legacy~

    DMG Up does nothing for it.

    Increase swim speed or take some kind of stealth perk to make it easier to close in. Or take special charge ups and focus on coverage
    so you can get lots of inkzookas. You've got options on how to optimize this weapon, but you need to be good at the element of surprise to be successful
    with it in combat.

    What are some optimal builds for this weapon? I'm not 100% sure what all to build for gear wise and this thread hasn't been used since the nerf x.x

    Well for me, swim speed is always a must just because time is so important in this game and superjumping is often dangerous. I tend to get splatted a lot as a roller so I like special saver or quick respawn. If you're a fan of using beakons, ink recovery up is very useful.

    CB, 2x Swim SPD(switch one to tenacity if solo), ink res, ink savor sub(switch to main if solo), s.dur up

    Don't get ink rec unless you use at least two. Ink savor sub is better for this roller.
